Thanks to the unrepentant-sins of the D.C. spending-bingers, dead-set on squandering our future for self-centered political gain today, illogically, our military now faces almost 500-billion-dollars in funding cuts. The Army, alone, will lose 80,000 soldiers. Returning to Air Force cuts, and the specific impact on Savannah's Combat Readiness Training Center. Of the nation's 4 CRTC's, weather and training advantages make Savannah the most favored and productive site of all. Case in point, the choice of Savannah for the very-successful, mega-unit, "Global Guardian" exercise, the largest of its kind in the nation. With great support from the Savannah Airport and local FAA; a 40-plus fighter-jet ramp area; large, restricted, air-ground ranges; Fort Stewart-Hunter assets; and state-of-the-art evaluations, war-fighters eagerly come to our CRTC to train over 40-weeks a year.
